Baby Leo | Newborn photography

I had a fantastic newborn photography session in the studio with Lisa-Claire  and handsome baby Leo.

Leo was seventeen days old when he arrived for his first set of portraits and lion came along too.

Check out some of some of my favourite images from their photo session.



Newborn Photography – Simi & Asconio

Happy 2018 to you.  I hope this year is abundant in love, health and happiness for you and your family.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for being part of this amazing photography journey with me.

Let’s start this year with this blog – Simi & Asconio


I had the pleasure of photographing Simi’s previous pregnancy and was over the moon to be asked to document her second baby – Asconio.

Asconio was a dream to photograph.   Here are a few favourites from our session.

Look out for more beautiful babies this year – and do please contact me if you wish to book a session.

6 months portrait session on the watch me grow baby plan

Check out these gorgeous images of baby Kieron, 6 months portrait session on the  Watch Me Grow Baby Plan.

Kieron is a very special boy, he is my godson’s son and I am really enjoying capturing his first year.

Here are some of my favourite images from the session.

We had such a giggle photographing him with the teddies.  Kieron did not want to let the teddies sit next to him instead choosing to grab them just as we lined them up.  Luckily for us we decided the image we captured below was actually cuter then the one we where aiming for.

We look forward to the next milestone in a few months too.

Five things a pregnant woman cannot live without

I spend lots of time with pregnant woman and would love to help ladies enjoy their bumps even more.

So lets look at Five things a pregnant woman cannot live without.

The VIP group – Five things a pregnant woman cannot live without

I asked the question in my vip group on facebook (a group designed for anyone that has been a client of mine) I loved some of their answers.

1) A big pair of comfy trousers! My dads tracksuit bottoms for me
2) My pregnancy pillow to help me sleep at night
3) Cravings (these included co co pops, strawberry milkshake, tomatoes, crisp cold apples, smarties, cherry aid and salted popcorn)
4) Slippers, comfy pjs
5) Gavison

From a google search – Five things a pregnant woman cannot live without

I also researched the internet as it was over ten years ago for me and things change.

1) An honest pregnancy book that won’t make you feel scared or guilty
2) Good prenatal vitamins
3)  Maternity underwear and larger bras
4)  One maternity outfit that makes you feel fabulous
5)  Comfortable shoes that go with everything

Everything Baby Berkshire’s  – Five services that a pregnant woman should not live without

I can see times have changed since my pregnancies and there are so many fantastic therapists that offer services that are really amazing for pregnant and new mums.

I am a proud member of Everything Baby Berkshire and can personally recommend lots of their services as we often meet each others clients as well as meet up regular ourselves.

Tessa’s yoga – Pregnancy yoga. Yoga for every stage of a woman’s life: Pregnancy, Mother & Baby, and Well Woman classes; Deep Relaxation & Birth Preparation workshops in Caversham.

Linda at Celtic Touch Linda has many talents and has received specialist training in Maternity Reflexology and Pregnancy Massage allowing her to adapt sessions for your changing needs through each trimester. Treatments are on a one to one basis in a secure, relaxing environment with complete confidentiality.

Louise at Reading Hypnobirthing Louise is professional and will make you feel at ease straight away. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques, how to use visualisation to focus your mind, you will be shown HypnoBirthing videos and given demonstrations. At the end of the antenatal course you will be fully equipped for a relaxed birth.

Chris at Time for Pilates Pilates is ideal of women postnatally, as there is lots of strengthening and pelvic floor work. Women should wait until at least 6 weeks after the birth, and should have had their final check up from the doctor, before they resume exercise. Chris runs a specific class for postnatal women, who may bring their babies to the class.

Trish at swimkidz Swimming for pregnanct ladies, babies, toddlers and children. Swimkidz are proud to say they have literally taught thousands of little ones to swim and become safer around water.

My top five – Five things a pregnant woman cannot live without

My pregnancy’s where ten and twenty one years ago now but from what I remember for me I would say it was

1) Maternity clothes – This was the one time in my life where I remember having lots of great quality clothes from different maternity shops
2) Gaviscon – I am pleased to say my pregnancies are the only times in my life I have suffered with heart burn
3) Family – Surrounded by love and positive people
4) A great pregnancy book – With my last pregnancy I enjoyed reading Minus nine to one by Jools Oliver.  After a ten year gap I needed reminding of what was expected etc.
5) A holiday –  It is great to have a rest before baby arrives and get some bump photos in the sun

So here are five top tips from from my gorgeous clients, five researched from the internet, five that I am now aware of since specialising in pregnancy and newborn photography and wish I had could have had and my top five.

Thank you for reading and I hope this helps and please feel free to contact me to add to this list 🙂


Do you know your Sacred Money Archetype?

This is a completely different type of post today.

My husband and myself took this test, the results are SO interesting and life changing.

Do you know your Sacred Money Archetype?

Take this quiz and get your partner to take it to.

I am the nurturer.

I am pleased my husbands results where completely different – he is the accumulator. I think we compliment each other.

The results are completely fascinating. I would like to explore my archetype more as I can now see the way I see my world and treat money is completely in line with my archetype – The nurturer.

You will find Denise has got your personality spot on and will learn so much about yourselves.
